HAWAII THEATRE CENTER PRESENTS
A Benefit Premiere
“The ‘Ohina Short Film Showcase Premiere”
Friday, September 7, 2018
The ʻOhina Short Film Showcase debuted in 1999 to support local independent filmmakers and to give them an opportunity to exhibit their films to the community. Named with the Hawaiian term for “gathering” or “collecting,” ʻOhina provides an annual exclusive venue for a collection of works by Hawaiʻi filmmakers to be gathered and presented to the community.
Since then, ʻOhina has grown to become Hawaiʻi’s biggest short film festival for students, amateur and professional filmmakers. Although entries can come from around the world, there is only one requirement: a creative relationship to the Hawaiian Islands.
Hawaiʻi filmmaker Mitchel Viernes’ vision comes to life with Kalewa, a new independent short film produced and created in partnership with ʻOhina for our upcoming 2018 showcase. Viernes presented his concept alongside scripts by six other filmmakers at a special workshop hosted by Black Panther screenwriter Joe Robert Cole last year. Cole and the ʻOhina team selected this project to serve as the inaugural project of ʻOhina Films. A teaser trailer is presented above; catch the finished film at ʻOhina 2018.
Ticket prices for ‘Ohina Short Film Showcase Premiere are $9.00, $15.00, $26.00, $46.00 and $75.00 (VIP Meet and Greet with Reception with Film makers) plus fees. Additional fees apply. Tickets prices increase day of the event.
Children under 4 years of age not permitted.
